Fan protest: Manchester United fans invade Old Trafford pitch as clamour against the Glazers increases

According to the BBC, Manchester United fans broke onto the Old Trafford turf as protests outside the stadium against the Glazers grew heated.

Thousands of fans were in attendence for the second straight weekend demanding the American owners relinquish control of the club.

Fans who made it to the pitch were removed but some returned later. According to a report, there were also protests outside the team hotel where the United players spent the night.

Red smoke bombs littered the area around the bus that was parked just outside the Lowry Hotel.

Referee Michael Oliver and former United skipper Gary Neville saw their vehicles surrounded as they entered the stadium. Thankfully there was no trouble and both were allowed through amid much anti-Glazer chanting.

For a change, it is matters off the field that take precedence over a clkash against arch-rivals Liverpool. The match has now been delayed on safety grounds.

We take a look at some of the images and reactions from the incident below.
